"Installing GnomeHack is about as simple as you can get. Currently, there are no binaries available or packages, so you'll need a C compiler. If you're running Linux and you don't have a compiler, go and get gcc IMMEDIATELY."

"If you're running an older version of Linux without GNOME, then you'll have a few more hoops to jump through than I did. Remember, the name of the game is GNOMEHack, if you don't like GNOME, go play regular old Nethack. (GnomeHack will run under KDE, but obviously, GNOME has to be installed.)"
